LuPone, Patinkin out for 'Evening'

The stars of “An Evening With Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin” insist the spring’s Broadway revival of “Evita,” starring Ricky Martin, “has nothing to do” with their show, set to open Monday at the Ethel Barrymore Theater.

“Not at all,” Mandy Patinkin said at Tuesday’s press junket in Sardi’s restaurant. It’s only coincidence that he and Patti LuPone’s last matchup on Broadway was in “Evita” in 1979.

Roles like Eva Peron and Che Guevara don’t come along very often. But that’s not the question, LuPone insisted.

“It’s not whether there will be another great role, it’s ‘will I get hired again!’ It’s always the question,” she said. “I don’t think there’s an actor unless it’s Meryl Streep or Bobby De Niro who doesn’t worry that they’ll ever work again. It’s part of the territory. You wonder if you’re vital enough to get hired again. And it has nothing to do with age.”
